the points being filled up at the bottom with strawberry leaves of gold, not rising as high as the balls. Only five of the balls appear when heraldically displayed. The cap is the same as the Duke's and Marquess's.

A Viscount's Coronet is a circlet of gold, chased as jewelled, supporting sixteen silver balls, seven of which appear in the representation.

The Coronet of a Baron is a plain circlet of gold, thereon six silver balls, four of which are seen in the representation.

The two last-names Coronets have the crimson velvet cap with the tassel, and the edging of ermine, the same as those of a Duke, Marquess, and Earl. See p. xxxiv.

The Coronet of a King of Arms is silver gilt, formed of a circle, upon which is inscribed part of the first verse of the 51st Psalm, viz., "Miserere mei Deus secundum magnam misericoriam tuam;" the rims is surmounted with sixteen leaves, in shape resembling the oak leaf, every alternate one being somewhat higher than the rest, nine of which appear in the profile view of it; the cap is of crimson satin, closed at the top by a gold tassel, and turned up with ermine. See p. xxxiv.

A crest-coronet or ducal coronet, on which, or issuing from which crests are often borne, is composed of a circlet of gold chased and jewelled, having raised on it four strawberry leaves, three of which appear in representation.

As the Crown of the Soverein of England is not exactly similar to those borne by other ptentates, so most of the Coronets of foreign noblemen are different from those of British peers.
